Elizabeth meets ..... Dean Jackson

Dean Jackson has been with the children’s music group Music Time since 1998, when it was first set up in Beverley Minster Parish Hall. Today, he has seven groups, two in Cottingham and five in Beverley. Dean explains his reason behind Music Time is that “there is no better joy to see the pre-school children develop and move on to their schools full of confidence and enjoying what music has to offer”, and certainly “the aim of Music Time is to encourage singing, dancing and music making. Social skills and language development are also nurtured during classes.”

Dean learnt to play the guitar around the age of 12, but has always thought of himself as more of a vocalist, and as well as having a BA in History of Art and a BA in Social, Economic History, he has also previously headlined at Cornucopia Festival, as he performs under the name Jackson D.

Jackson D has enjoyed multiple radio plays and national magazine appearances in the last two and a half years with Dean performing along with his percussionist and bassist. Dean explains that “music has been his life and passing my enthusiasm and knowledge on to anyone who wants to experience it be that from new born babies to the older folk” is all his has ever really wanted to do.

Music Time also runs groups in Howden and South Cave with another leader, but in Beverley, the group really has become a passion of Dean’s, which he continues to enjoy even after 19 years. Check out their programme at www.music-time.org or ring 07563 764793 if you would like to learn more.
